College of the Holy Cross alumnus J.D.”Dave” Power III ’53, was recently featured in the Boston Globe, where he discusses his transformative $3 million gift to support the College’s experiential learning program, now called the J.D. Power Center for Liberal Arts in the World, as well as his modest upbringing in Worcester and the fond memories of his experience at Holy Cross.

“My dad was strapped, from his limited salary [as a teacher], and wanted to make sure that we all got to college,” Power told the Globe. “Being a day hop, as they called it, I spent a lot more time going to and from school for classes.”

Power’s gift will enable Holy Cross to further its focus on experiential learning programs—an essential element of a liberal arts education—that make it possible for students to identify and pursue growth opportunities outside the classroom.

Power, founder of the global marketing information firm J.D. Power and Associates, comes from a long line of Holy Cross graduates and is a longtime supporter of the College. His daughter Susan Curtin graduated from Holy Cross in 1993 and is now a member of the College’s Board of Trustees.

“We were really looking for a way to honor our father’s legacy and the impact he’s had . . . and marrying that up with all the great lessons he learned at Holy Cross,” Curtin said.
